What's the best to use fishing underwater lights? I've been having some success with 1.5" white curlytail on 1/16 oz jig head. Tonight I tried lots of soft plastics. Started with the curlytail and picked up one trout. Then switched through 5-6 other soft plastics and finally started getting bites on a 2" gulp shrimp in pumpkinseed. Fish were there, I think just too much bait in the water tonight.

I always had good luck on the storm lures saltwater shad wild eyes at night under the lights or a small mirolure like a mirodine... Good luck... The retrieve will very depending on how they like it...

Yozuri 3d minnow works good, I think the best way though is with a fly..

I've got some of those storm wildeye shads. Will have to give them a try next time. Pretty sure I have a yozuri 3d minnow too. What are the good colors for use in the lights?

I went out later last night and the bait was gone from the light. Caught another spec and 2 sandies on the gulp.

Glow lures work best, speck tails, grubs etc.

Live shrimp on a bare treble hook-throw past the light, wait for the big "shadow" to start to appear, reel fast to get shrimp up on surface and drag it towards shadow-you'll hear "slurp" and you're off to the races.

IMO treble hooks should be outlawed

IMO Lures and single hooks should be outlawed!!:p

No. 8 Mustad-nickel plated-they don't dissolve/rust quickly and it'll kill the fish slowly if it busts your line-that way ya improve the crab and hardhead populations!! I sure wish they made SS TREBLE hooks at a low cost!!

Them dang "plastic" lures are next on the EPA list ya know! Gad Dang Petroleum products-go green-go treble!:)
